PROFILE: Raja Johnson

HEIGHT: 6-foot-5 1/2

WEIGHT: 183 pounds

CLASS: 2010, a junior

POSITIONS: The ability to play several positions increases the opportunities for Raja playing division one college basketball.

HIGH SCHOOL: Bishop Maginn High School in Albany, New York

AAU PROGRAM: Albany City Rocks directed by the highly regarded Jim Hart

Albany City Rocks director Jim Hart has delight in having Johnson in his AAU program. "He's an extremely talented player who can play a lot of positions and be an impact player in so places on the floor," Hart said. "He's sort of under the radar screen for most college programs because they haven't seen him play yet. But he's worth a look down the road."

*The reason why the majority of college programs are unaware of Raja Johnson is because he was in summer school. He didn't participate in the crucial July evaluation month when every college program is out scouting high school players at AAU events.
